“We’re always adding features and making the dating experience more robust,” said Scott Eagleson, Senior Producer at Teligence, which runs Livelinks from offices in Vancouver.“You can use Livelinks to zero in on people who are most interesting to you.” Connecting with a potential date via Livelinks takes only a few minutes.
I’ve been surprised by slow talkers, lispers, drawlers, and guys with all kinds of accents.
It can take a few minutes for me to get used to the sound of my date’s voice, but sometimes I never get used to their off-putting speech habits.
You can’t tell that about a person via text, and so online dating inadvertently set me up for an unpleasant surprise.
The way a person talks isn’t the same as the way a person types.
It’s totally up to you how you want to present yourself to potential dates.
And, don’t worry, if you don’t get it right the first time, you can always erase it and try again.
All you have to do is call in, punch in a membership passcode, identify which gender you want to talk to, and set up a personal greeting that reflects who you are and what you want.
It can be short and simple, as in, “I’m 27, single, and just looking to chat.” Or it can be a more in-depth description of your hobbies, goals, mood, and experiences.
“It’s a laid-back company,” Marketing and Product Specialist Connor Sobolik told us. We all have fun.” Scott said he enjoys the day-to-day work at the company and is also inspired by its mission to help people build social and romantic relationships.
“I like hearing the stories from people who met on the phone line,” Scott said.
Over the years, Livelinks has become a dating hot spot where there’s almost always someone to have a conversation with. Instead of connecting people to information via an answering service, they thought, why not connect people to people?
